RARITAN TWP., NJ – The new IHOP here has been celebrating its Grand Opening with events all week long, but perhaps the biggest single event of the week is tomorrow, Saturday.

That’s when local firefighters will be competing in a fun-filled relay race eating contest of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes.

Ten volunteer firefighters representing Flemington Volunteer Fire Department and Raritan Township Fire Company’s Station 21 will form two teams of five in the competition to earn bragging rights for one year.

The day’s events will also include a DJ and a bounce house for kids.

The festivities will be held from 1 to 4 p.m., with the firefighters relay race held from 2 to 3 p.m.

IHOP Flemington owners Sanjay and Neal Patel of Imperio Groups are hosting the activities, and they’ll be presenting a donation to the Flemington Fire Department as part of the day’s highlights.

The Flemington IHOP is located just off Church Street Extension on Royal Road at the Hampton Inn. The restaurant is a dream-come-true for the Patel brothers, who have eyed the location for years. They have completely remodeled the location, inside and out.

The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Flemington IHOP and TAPinto Flemington-Raritan are marketing partners.

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

Reiner Doesn't Speak for Township Committee

To the editor:

In light of the recent letter to the editor from Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner regarding his personal opinion on arming school officials, we felt the need to share our views on his statement.

Mr. Reiner took this position as an individual citizen and not in his capacity as a member of the Township Committee. We wholeheartedly disagree with the notions of arming ...

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...

End 'Gun Free Zones,' Harden Soft Targets

To the editor:

In response to the Governor's recent signing of legislation restricting law-abiding gun owners to 10 rounds of ammunition and rejecting calls to address the uneven playing field existing vis-à-vis some single mom alone with her child fending for herself against some armed assailant packing who knows how many rounds is something a Politburo thug would appreciate! The ...
